Falling into Fall Auction

I am excited to tell you about a special event.  Sept. 26, starting at 8pm, there will be a fall auction I am participating in with a group of crafters on Facebook.  Everything has a fall theme, and is handmade.  The apron below is what I have submitted.  This apron says , " Gobble, Gobble, Gobble,  Gobble til you wobble".  It is a medium size. There are lots of other items, including jewelry, girls clothes, fall decor, handmade soap, & more, so check it out!  If interested, please go to this facebook page and like it to be included in the closed auction.  Hope you can join us!  

Also I am having a September Etsy Sale, which will end on Sept. 30.  Spend $10 and get 15% off using the coupon code:  SEPTSPECIAL15 .  To check it out go to
I have several new pillows and aprons so check it out!

 I had a good time at the Berryville Yard Sale on Saturday, (Sept. 20, it was delayed a week because of the rain).  The picture below is of some little girls admiring my items.   Next event will be at the Purcellville Town Market on October which will be there 1 year anniversary celebration!  Looking forward to that.   Then October 11-12 is the Apple Butter Festival in Berkeley Springs, WV.  I will be set up in front of Lion's Lair Unique Gift Shop and will be teaming up a friend who makes home made soap.  Her company is Wild Rose Soap Co. I will have a new line of " beauty bags " to go along with her soaps.   Lion's Lair is at 81B N. Washington St. a couple blocks down from the State park which is in the center of town.  This is a huge event and there will be a parade Saturday morning, and lots of vendors, and other activities going on Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
This is a fun event for the entire family, so you don't want to miss it!

Famous Singers & Nice Surprises

On Saturday, I had a great time at the Patsy Cline Block Party!  It started off with the Elvis Impersonator who had a great voice, though he was kind of short and his hips  just didn't move like Elvis's.   He did a wonderful job on How Great Thou Art, and I got a short video of Burning Love, however, it was taking to long to download.
 I saw a couple of my friends there from my church, and later on was waving to one who was standing on the corner, but she didn't see me, and two other people walking up the hill waved.  I thought I wasn't waving at them, but when I looked it was my best friend from childhood and her Mom.  We were best friends from 5th grade all the way through High School!  I couldn't believe it .  I was so excited to see them.  She had read my blog so knew I was going to be there, and decided to come.  It was a very nice surprise!!  

The Patsy Cline Block Party had local music for 2 hours, some really great singers.  They also had the Patsy Cline official singer who is in the middle in the pink shirt.  Jimmy Fortune made an appearance also, and I got a quick snapshot of him and Patsy Cline's husband as they walked by my booth!  There was a concert that night with Jimmy Fortune and another group at the park.   

My next event is Saturday at the Purcellville Town Market.  I am looking forward to that and have a special going on - spend $25 and get 1 item for half price!   I will be featuring new aprons,  kids pillows, music pillows, & lots of football pillows with football season starting.   To check out my Etsy Shop:  go to
